What different types of servers exist? For example, cloud and client servers.?

Question by Arkire: What different types of servers exist? For example, cloud and client servers.?
This is information I would like to find out for my upcoming computer science exam.

Can anyone give a list of types of servers that are used both in a private home, or a business network? I don’t need vast descriptions on each one, just names of a few so I can research them myself. Thanks.
